Hello. Gaylynn here with my Technique Time series. Today, I am sharing a mixed media card using watercolor, stamping and distress oxide ink blending.
New day, new strength, new hope. We got this.
Here are helpful tips for creating this mixed media card. To begin, pre-trim or die-cut watercolor paper to fit your card front. Then, stamp the pear and one sentiment onto that watercolor paper. Next, stamp the bottom sentiment or add foil onto vellum and then trim that to add later. Next, prepare a palette of watercolors mixed with water. Now, add color in different shades of green to the pear and the leaves and then heat set. Once dry, begin adding ink shading using a blending brush, around that pear panel. I used two colors of ink blending. Then, splatter with green watercolor and again with white diluted paint. Heat set. Finally, layer the panels, the foiled sentiment, gems and cording to finish.
